Friday Finds

Another great blog topic from Should be Reading.

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week?
Share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!

Two books I came across this week from authors on SheWrites (I'm a member with my Depression Cookies blog). Both are indie or small published, and Shawn Lamb is a former traditionally published author turned indie.

Check them out:

The Huguenot Sword, Shawn Lamb

Summary from Amazon: For Faith. For Friendship. For Freedom. In the time of Louis XIII and Cardinal Richelieu, when being a Protestant could mean death, The Huguenot Sword roamed the streets of Paris by night, defending those faithful to the young heretical religion. The nobility scorned them as ruffians, to the oppressed Protestants they were saviors, but to the Cardinal Guards they were a pestilence needing to be terminated. The situation becomes desperate when those in power launch a bold plan to destroy the group. One wrong move can be fatal. But the ordeal of Paris pales in comparison to the possible annihilation of their faith and people at the battle of La Rochelle.

A Summer in Oakville, Lisa J. Lickel and Shellie Neumeier

Summary from Amazon: One Magical Summer in Oakville, Wisconsin, Love Finds its Way through Four Entwined Lives. Tessa Hasmer Murphy has a secret. Estranged from her husband, will she let a past love and a fight to save the family farm destroy her marriage and daughter Lindsay's happiness? Lindsay Murphy plans to live on her grandparents' farm until she can find a job, but developer Brandon Calloway has other plans for the property. As she wages war against him, will she lose her heart and the farm both? Widower Arthur Hasmer's life and that of his son, Andy, spiral out of control. Then old friend, Dana London, reenters the picture with the power to help them all back to love, joy and faith. Andy Hasmer has the ultimate bummer life. No mom, not much of a dad, no future. When he's sent to the farm and wrecks the truck, nothing could be worse than the lousy job he takes to pay Grampa back-except maybe putting up with the pastor's daughter, Ella.

Happy Reading.

Please pass along any books you discovered this week.
